under the ryan budget 43%, and now it's been restored by president obama, and they are responding as they should to the northeast and to all states that have been inflicted. they have called it a national disaster zone. new york and new jersey are hit harder than other areas. they're allocating resources, responding, saving lives, and they are helping the first responders, the volunteers, really the city, state, and federal workers who are doing a heroic job in our great city responding to this worst storm in my lifetime for new york. >> you represent constituents here. >> yes. >> how are they reacting to what's happened? >> they were rising to the occasion. the lower east side and lower west side has absolutely no power. there are no traffic lights. people are helping people cross the street. they were serving as the police directing traffic. they were helping each other. it reminded me of the spirit after 9/11 where everyone did whatever they could to help. but you need the city government, the state government, the federal government to come in and help. mr. romney says rely on
, but politics is all part of this. and what you have here is the governor of a devastated state who is up for re-election next november, november 2013. he is a republican governor of a blue state. a state that more likely than not will vote for president obama. these pictures that we're seeing today, what we're watching right now, don't be surprised if you see it again a year from now, when he's running for re-election. so, again, chris christie, thought of himself during the convention in tampa in august, and at some point, somewhere in the recesses of his brain, he's got to be thinking, not just about the people of his state and getting them through this tragedy, but also what it means for him to be seen working with the democratic president of the united states, who at this point, very well could be the next president of the united states, if things go the way the folks in chicago want it to go on november 6th. >> indeed. mike viqueira, i'm watching chris christie live, governor christie, with the president, and it seems as though mr. christie was kind of made for this kind of situation. he s
. and even for the states, quite frankly. the governor and the mayor weren't shining examples of, you know, state control over that situation. so there was enough blame and mistake-prone action to look at and learn from, and obama is nothing if not a quick study in that regard and understanding and appreciating how to use the tools of this government at a time of crisis. now, we'll see. the expectation for the president is to do his job and to be on top of doing his job. so politically i don't know if there's a huge upside -- there's more of a downside risk than anything if there's a gaffe somewhere, if there's a mistake somewhere in the execution of responding to those in need, but i think this president has shown that his administration will be prepared for that because that's what people expect. >> karen, i was watching your facial expressions there and they were quite perfect. perhaps you'd like to put words to them. >> well, you know, nice try, michael. i mean, let's remember that in terms -- the october surprise in 2008 we saw a real sharp contrast between john mccain and president o
